A definitive guide to Wilson's Promontory, one of the world's premier national parks. The history, geology, fauna, and flora are covered comprehensively for the casual visitor, enthusiastic naturalist, and professional biologist, and includes: a concise account of the Prom's geological history and sites of geomorphological significance; an introduction to the intriguing history of human occupation and exploitation; complete descriptions of more than 400 plants, supported by detailed botanical illustrations and photographs; full accounts of almost 300 vertebrate and invertebrate animals, with full-colour photographs of key species; up-to-date listings of plants and animals known to occur on the Prom. This comprehensive and authoritative guide should be an essential item in the backpack, glove box, or on the bookshelf of everyone who visits the Prom or appreciates the diverstiy and beauty of Australia's wild places. Biologists David Meagher and Michele Kohout share a passion for the Prom. nFor several years they have explored every track in the park day and night, boated around most of its coastline, investigate little known and unrecorded species, and consulted leading experts in the geology, zoology, and botany of southern Australia. Their aim has been to produce a high-quality, authoritative field guide that is uesful to a wide range of people, and which stimulates further interest in research into the Prom's natural history.
